Know the Exceeding Greatness of His Power
How great is our God! Reading through the book of Ezra is just a small snapshot of time and how miraculously God moves through people, through time, through Nations, always working to show His love and deliverance to whoever will turn and follow Him! Ezra learned to tap into the greatness of God’s power by submitting to God and yielding to Him in prayer and fasting. You can read three great prayers recorded in the Bible by Ezra, Daniel and Nehemiah that made the way for God to show the power of His goodness to deliver His people!
Ezra 9: 5-15
Prayer to know God in a Greater Measure
Dear Lord, today I am seeing that as you have begun a good work in me, you are completing it. You are changing me more into the image of Christ as I am continuing to pray and stay in your Word! As II Corinthians 3:18 says, I am changing from glory to glory! The work you are doing in me is equipping me to understand how to use the great power you have given to every believer. You are opening my eyes to understand the authority you have given me over all the power of the enemy and that nothing shall harm me. You have seated me together with Jesus in heavenly places, far above all evil forces. Because you are for me God, who can be against me! Thank you for giving me the mind of Christ and blessing what I put my hands to. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
